FOOTBALL CHAT. [BY "LINESMAN."] The chief item of interest in the district on Christmas Day was the match between Dolgelley Town and Mountain Rangers. The Town were not Blow in recognising that they were a good deal superior to their antagonists and from the kick-oft there was only one team in it and that was not the Ranges They repeatedly burst through their defence, and piled on the goals to the tune of nine to two. There is no need for comment, the score speaks for itself, but heavy as the defeat undoubtedly was, the Rangers possessed some players, who individually made a gallant show, but they were unable to turn the tide. The superior play of the Town could not be prevented by a few, however, and the result was a signal defeat. Better luck next time. On Saturday, Barmouth came over to try con- clusions with the Volunteer Rovers, bat they went back disappointed. The score against them was 5 goals to nothing. A great deal was made of the the fact, that the Barmoutb team consisted chiefly of reserves, but that is not the fault of the Volun- teers, and if the Barmouth Executive decided to risk the game, with such a team, they cannot blame anybody but themselves for the result. The weather conditions were shocking, rain sweeping across the ground in torrents, and scientific plav was out of the question. The Volunteers made their presence felt from the outset, and after some sterling work, got 3 goals in the first half hour, which practically settled the game. The Visitors' forwards strove to alter matters during the com- mencement of the second half, but the half-back division very indifferently supported them, and all their attempts were futile. On the day's play, the best team won haads down. The winners met Towya Rovers yesterday in the semi-final, but it was played too late to get the report in for this week.
